On some shots I've found skin tone too orange, on some others I've found it non-consistent with others. Also I believe focal length is not optimal for specific shots.

Thank you for posting. In general, the images are alright and so is the processing.
We, as photographers would like to create our own look based on our own personal visions. And nobody should be faulted for that. Whether the images appeal to the majority or the minority, it's another story. At the very least, it should appeal to the people paying for them. Having said that, it is also unavoidable to apply our own set of values when looking at others' images. In this case, (again, based on my own values), there's room for improvement with regard to composition in general,  to create images that tell the story. For example in image 8, what is the photographer trying to convey? Would it make the image more effective if the focus point were on the bride's fingertip and/or thestrap? Or in image 10, would it have been better if a deeper depth of field was created rendering sharp focus from the tips of the shoes to at least the midway down the length of the shoes, if not the whole length?
But then again, that's just my vision and my two cents.

Maybe it's only a "problem" or disturbing to people who are used to post processing but I'd say that the vignetting effect is used too much or at least the effect is too strong. The gradient from white to black looks too thin for me.
On the other hand, vignetting is almost obligatory in wedding photography :-)
My 2 cents.

I appreciate your opinions. I also understand where you are coming from. We were going for a warm tone on these photos but I could reduce the vignetting.. It is all a work in progress =-) This will help me get better next time.

I also just uploaded the video: http://www.stockhammedia.com/2012/10/03/san-diego-wedding-videography-christina-and-carlos/

The video looks great to me  ;). Though there's much noise in the audio from time to time.

the noise in the beginning and in a few clips was intentional... however the audio clip from the ceremony is terrible.. they started the ceremony 15 minutes earlier and we had just arrived to start setting up.. the bride and groom showed up in a car and walk down the aisle... so i could not get a mic on him. It was very frustrating. and what i got was just audio straight from the camera mic. I didnt even get a chance to put my rode mic on a camera. the ceremony was literally 2 minutes long. but thank you =-)
